Most frequented healthy food restaurant: I am a member of Verandah Golf & Country Club. Chef Steve’s salads are delicious!

How you invest in your community: I created Ladies Who Lunch in August 2012 because I wanted to meet, socialize and build relationships with smart, interesting, accomplished and fun women. Ladies Who Lunch takes place monthly in private country clubs throughout Lee and Collier Counties. There is no speaker, no raffle and no door prize. It is simply a lovely luncheon that gives like-minded ladies an opportunity to connect personally and professionally.

What you are doing to be the change you want to see in the world: I teach my Transitions coaching clients to “start at home” and focus on themselves. Changing yourself is how you change the world.
